Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2-This very simple story is filled with rhyming and sight words perfectly suited to children just starting to read on their own. A group of colorful mice discovers an ice rink and have fun swirling and whirling around. The little creatures take a break from their skating and look down to see the pattern their skates have made and realize that it looks like a cat. The feline comes to life, filled with color, and joins the mice in their skating adventure. The illustrations, in the trademark style of the Emberleys, are vibrant, geometric, and playful. Each spread has bright pictures and one line of text. This layout highlights the simple words as well as the art, which makes this book a good hybrid of a traditional easy reader and a picture book. A charming choice for winter sharing.-Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, ILα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

Five brightly dressed mice walk through a snowy landscape to the pale blue ice, where they skate around, leaving white lines that form the head of a cat. A friendly red cat joins them, and they all happily skate around on the ice. Designed for beginning readers, this vividly illustrated tale features a few simple words on each double-page spread and a good number of rhymes, such as “the cat with a hat skates with mice on ice.” As the text of the brief story concludes, “nice!” Cheerful artwork in the Emberleys’ signature style brings the text to life. Created with cut paper and digital elements, the characters stand out brilliantly against the plain backgrounds. With the large format of a picture book, this volume from the I Like to Read series would suit beginning readers and toddlers equally well, as both will appreciate the short text, simple vocabulary, and vibrant artwork. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
The reader book category is infested with two problems:

1- Overly commercialized characters in series which are annoying and unoriginal from an aesthetic standpoint... as well as concerning from a parental standpoint. Expecting that you need Dora the Explorer or Disney's Cinderella in a book in order to get your child interested in reading is a dangerous and unhealthy precedent to start.

2-The other problem is that most readers suffer from completely banal story lines (if a cat sitting on a mat is a story at all).

Mice on Ice is refreshing in a number of ways! The art is bright, engaging and original (which catapults it ahead of 90% of other readers right there!) and the story is simple and sweet. There is one little unexpected twist that develops as a result from the track marks in the ice and it's fun to watch little kids notice how the tracks develop through the pages. That's essentially the story right there.

All in all, it's a lovely winter book, great for early readers who can sound out basic words; it was perfect for my 6 year old son to read and loved equally by my 3 year old daughter.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tommy on January 1, 2014
Format: Hardcover
This is the first book that my four year old has not become frustrated with while learning to read. We have tried so many early reading books and she has never even tried to sound out the words or look for sight words but this book was different. It is simple with very few words on each page and the same words throughout the book. She was so excited to be able to "read" it after finding her sight words and memorizing the story a bit.
